WATERLOO -- A Waterloo man was arrested Friday night for threatening police officers and kicking out the window of a Waterloo squad car.

Officers responded to a call about 9:45 p.m. Friday for a fight in progress at 427 Rath St. Terrence Martez Gordon, 28, met Waterloo police officers outside of the home, where he was "highly agitated" and threatened to assault officers several times, according to the police report.

The report also states Gordon grabbed a metal shovel from the front porch of a house and threatened to assault the officers. He was Tazed before being placed under arrest, when he continued to attempt to kick officers and spit in an officer's face.  

While in the back of the squad car, Gordon kicked out the rear passenger side window.

He was taken to the Black Hawk County Jail and booked on two counts of assault on an officer, a serious misdemeanor, second-degree criminal mischief, second-offense intoxication and assault on an officer with a weapon.

Gordon has had several run-ins with law enforcement. Last year, he was charged with five counts of first-degree harassment on Dec. 27, and on Aug. 31 was arrested for carrying weapons, domestic assault and felon in possession of a firearm. He allegedly threatened a woman with a gun.
